Jermal Jaya is a medium-rise apartment nestled in the serene Pulau Tikus vicinity. The apartment can be easily spotted as it is the only building that features brick facing faÃ§ade. It is sited just next to Jermal Court and a stone’s throw away to Mutiara Villa and Grand View. The apartment was built in 1997.
Jermal Jaya comprises a single 7-storey block apartment with a total of 46 units. The units have built-up size of 900 sf with 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms configuration and a balcony. Being a medium-cost apartment, services provided are just 24-hour security and general maintenance. It also hosts an open car park for residents and visitors within the compound.
This established apartment is just mere minutes walking distance to Phor Tay Private High School, SJK (T) Azad, Penang Chinese Girls High School and Penang Chinese Girls Primary School.
Besides that, the apartment is about 5 minutes drive to shopping centres (Gurney Plaza and Midlands Park), hospitals (Penang Adventist Hospital and Tanjung Medical Centre), market (Pulau Tikus Market) and places of worship (Bagan Jermal Anglican Church and Phor Tay Buddhist Temple).
In terms of accessibility, Jermal Jaya is accessible from Jalan Burma, Jalan Mount Erskine, Jalan Tanjung Tokong and Gurney Drive that connects to Jalan Bagan Jamal. Jermal Jaya just 4.5 km from Magazine Circus, the centre point of Georgetown city centre, 13 km to Batu Ferringhi and 13 km to the Penang Bridge.
The environment within Jermal Jaya is serene and tranquil as it is a low density building and well surrounded by low-rise apartment (Jermal Court) and landed residences. In addition, the area is also furnished with large trees by the roadsides.
However, Jalan Bagan Jamal is one of the main roads in Penang. The road is very busy with heavy traffic during most times. The road connects to Jalan Burma, Jalan Kelawei and Jalan Mount Erskine. Traffic jam is a normal scenario at the Bagan Jermal â€“ Gottlieb roads junction.
Even though Jermal Jaya is strategically located in the city centre, the current market price (RM450 psf) is quite high for an apartment that lacks of facilities. For similar budget, one may opt for better apartment or condominium with full condominium facilities nearby.
